It is very humid here in SW Pa already.

A huge THANK YOU to whoever invented air conditioning.

I agree HH. I don't mind the high temps, it the humidity. Was outside sweating off a few pounds earlier. Husband told me to make baked potatoes for dinner tonight. I just looked at him like he was crazy, but I'm gonna do it because it either that or mashed.

I am making pasta because I don't want to turn on the oven at all! I have my crockpot of sauce cooking out on the picnic table - under the awning in case it rains.

No luck there, NYC is climbing into the high 80s as the week progresses. I don't do well after 80. Enjoy your stay.Smile

Hmm I live in suburban NYC and just looked at the rest of the week, mid 80's not bad considering it is almost later June

I like the cold - shoveling snow, don't mind it . Hate heat, I can only go so n@ ked. {#emotions_dlg.w00t}

Same here. Heat, I'm so-so about, heat and humidity NOOOOOOO! It is AWFUL here today after a gorgeous weekend. Walked out of the garage to bring in my garbage cans and the heat and humidity slammed me like I walked into a wall!

i will take the winter and cold weather back over the heat and humidity.....YUK.....it feels so horrible outside and it makes ME feel horrible.

cant wait to get to the beach!

Sunshine, when we first started spending summers at the beach, the weather was usually predictable. The temperature was usually in the very low eighties with a breeze blowing. It was very nice. It would be sweltering here around D. C., but not there. I've noticed a big change in recent years. The heat and humidity have invaded there much more frequently. I guess it's a sign of the times.

Its been hot here too, though I don't mind the heat. I think the air quality is what is driving me crazy now. I've dealt with it all of my life but lately, I really am tired of it.
